Dear Eagles: All I Can Say is Thank You

Jawnville has been quiet, unlike many parts of the city. To be honest, I haven’t been able to focus on much except for reliving Sunday’s Super Bowl. I’ve watched the game multiple times since the final whistle. I have re-watched the games against the Vikings and Falcons on the NFL Network. I’ve been glued to instagram and twitter watching posts and videos from an endearing group of unselfish players celebrating.

I can’t formulate enough thoughts to put together any substantial pieces for the site. The Eagles Super Bowl victory has actually rendered me speechless.

All I can say is THANK YOU. Thank you Jeffrey Lurie, Doug Pederson, Howie Roseman, Nick Foles, and the rest of the highly likeable 2017-18 Philadelphia Eagles for finally ridding Eagles fans of these demons:

-Jim Stinkin’ Plunkett

-Marion Campbell

-Fog Bowl

-Reggie White leaving in free agency

-Jerome Brown dying

-Joe Jerevicius & Ronde Barber

-Ricky Manning, Jr

-Tommy Hutton’s bobble

-Chip Kelly

-Bubby Brister

-Ty and Koy Detmer

-Bobby Hoying

-Rodney Peete

-Mike McMahon

-Ken O’Brien

-Brad Goebel

-Jeff Kemp

-Mark Sanchez

-Kevin Kolb.

-Rich Kotite

-Marcus Smith

-Danny Watkins

-Michael Haddix

-Jon Harris

-Jerome McDougle

-Kevin Allen

-Mike Mamula

-Shawn Andrews

-The Dream Team of Asomugha and Young

-Ron Solt

-Thrash and Pinkston

-Being the only team in the NFC east without a ring

-Super Bowl puking

-Spygate

-The man in France

-Defensive Coordinator Juan Castillo

-T.O. doing push-ups in his driveway

-and the many I’ve forgotten.

It hasn’t always been the easiest road being a Philadelphia Eagles fan, but we don’t really have a choice. We’re born into and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Thank you for making all those bumps in the road worth it. They made Super Bowl LII’s victory all that sweeter for a loyal fan base that’s been through a heck of a lot.

Thank you 2017-2018 Eagles for giving us Eagles fans one of the greatest moments in our lives.

YOU WERE ALL WE HAD. YOU WERE ALL WE NEEDED.
